Deirdre has started a new project in an effort to use up some scraps

20150807-150739.jpgand in class chose and cut out this one

20150807-150816.jpgthen this one

20150807-150849.jpgDeirdre is still deciding if she’ll hand or machine piece these stars.

We welcomed Janne to class, and she wanted to learn how to cut and hand piece and wanted to start with triangles. Only too happy to oblige!

20150807-151036.jpgPearl procured an extra bit of fabric and added it to the sides of her centre panel to bring it up to the correct size before adding on the first row of blocks

20150807-151214.jpgJenny too was learning the fine art of hand piecing and made the first star for her “Briar Hill”

20150807-151405.jpgAnne Marie neeeearly has all the antlers done on her deer

20150807-151504.jpgand Pearl got a little bored waiting for the kettle to boil……..



Lorraine has started a layout for her “Briar Hill”

20150807-151710.jpgand she just needs a few more blocks and it will be ready to sew down

20150807-151748.jpgSue 1 has gone nuts with her “Briar Hill” blocks having made all these in just two weeks!

20150807-151851.jpgLisa was feeling a little overwhelmed/out of control with her piecing, so sensibly has made a note of what, where and when

20150807-152002.jpgFiona is addicted to her “Star a Day” blocks; some are together and she spent the day cutting more stars and bagging them up

20150807-152113.jpgNanette sewed her binding on

20150807-152258.jpgJane is having DWR fun

20150807-152336.jpgChris made the first of these blocks

20150807-152403.jpgand Josephine has pieced her borders and started sewing them on to the centre

  1. I think I’d be defeated by the number of pieces, before I even began! I have such admiration for anyone piecing a quilt!

    Love all……Anne Marie’s-awesome! Welcome Janne!!!! Thanks for sharing………………….

  6. Maureen has done the same pattern as Anne Marie – it is so cute I may have to borrow it. However, altogether too much hand-piecing, this is what sewing machines are for!! (I’m not [entirely] serious!!) I love all the fussy cutting that your ladies do. I still have a project box with my star-a-day templates and fabrics ……..
